HLB Visa Signature still allows entry to the lounge @ KLIA & LCCT.
I was at KLIA lounge 2 weeks ago, and LCCT lounge just last week with my HLB Visa Signature card.

I just looked at the website after reading your page quickly, and yes, HLB stated it on their site.

Please read the fine print of your Diners card - particularly on lounge access.
Taken from the website (Self explanatory)

I received Black & White statement from Alliance Bank for my Alliance Platinum debit card.

Alliance Premium debit card
- KLIA Plaza Premium Lounge - first 40 pax per month
- LCCT Plaza Premium Lounge - first 20 pax per month

Alliance Platinum debit card
- KLIA Plaza Premium Lounge - first 50 pax per month
- LCCT Plaza Premium Lounge - first 50 pax per month

Alliance Premium debit card a privilege debit card, but it is less “premium” compared to Alliance Platinum debit card in terms of airport lounge access.

Gen-X, you need to edit your posting on Alliance Bank debit card as per my clarification above. It is not UNLIMITED access to LCCT Plaza Premium Lounge. There is a free entry pool of 50 times per month.

hahaha, thanks for the clarifications and why so impatient, didn't you read other posts where I mentioned I away and hard for me to post with my BB. Anyway yours is second post and everyone can read it tongue.gif

I was at LCCT early this week and enter it with my Alliance Premier Debit Card, but the guy didn't inform me on the quota. And as winner mentioned in CC V15 thread, the guy told me Alliance Platinum CC cannot enter the LCCT Plaza Premium Lounge rclxub.gif UOB Preferred Platinum Quota habis on last Tuesday but those with UOB Preferred Platinum with Privilege Banking can enter as there is no quota for them. Saw your post while on holiday, just came back and family all tired so didn't go reconfirm with Plaza Premium Lounge on Alliance Premier Debit Card quota.

yeahh, do you mind checking with Plaza Premium Lounge on quota for Alliance Platinum Credit Card, Alliance Platinum Debit Card and Alliance Premier Debit Card.

did you read my article on KLIA Lounge? Here's the link again.

Basically for me is that the chairs are more comfy and you get free drinks.

If you ask me, maybe KLIA not that important as there are many shops there and can go waste time looking at stuff. But if you do frequent LCCT, then the Plaza Premium Lounge is more comfortable and peaceful as LCCT is like a market.

LCCT Plaza Premium Lounge is too tiny and not so comfortable to be stayed long.

For me, access to airport lounges worldwide is more important especially during the long transit time.

Last time I have SCB VI which gave me priority pass to enter airport lounges in overseas. Now my DA VI gives me 2 passes per year, for entering any MAS Golden Lounges in Malaysia and overseas each.

I have exactly the same combination as yours. But I added Alliance Platinum debit card (limited to 50 entries per month for both KLIA and LCCT Plaza Premium Lounges) and DA VI (free 2 passes upon card approval) for airport lounge access purpose.

DA VI give you 2 yearly passes per year? Any conditions? I thought they only give you once and that's it.

The condition is similar to CIMB VS, whereby you need to spend RM100,000 per annum in order to get another 2 passes in the following year. The only different is that, CIMB/DA VI gives 1x free access to any MAS Golden Lounges in Malaysia and 1x free entry to any MAS Golden Lounges in overseas, while CIMB VS gives 2x complimentary entries to Plaza Premium Lounge located in KLIA, LCCT or Changi Airport.

Well, that's is indeed news to me because as far as I know, DAVI do give 2 lounge access as welcome gift (which I received them too in 2009) and there is no where stipulating that they will "renew" the passes if you spend any amount. Are you into the second year already and if yes did you get the free pass as mentioned by you? Someone in my blog did mentioned also that he has checked with DA CS and the passes is a one time thingy.

KLIA premium plaza lounge only accessible for international passengers.

LCCT should be for both domestic and international right?

I've yet to get a reply from MBB for my application for AMEX Platinum credit card. So far i think that's the BEST card for free access to premium lounges. thats just my opinion. the only drawback is that it does not have any cashback options. much like the AMEX gold credit card which i currently have. will probably cancel the gold one IF i get this platinum one

As long as your card can enter, they don't care. No need show boarding pass also.

Platinum CC do have "cash back" when you redeem 200MR points = RM1. With Amex's Amex minimum 2X MR for whatever transaction, it works out to be 1% cash back. Also you get 10X MR with certain merchants with Amex Plat CC and if not mistaken petrol and groceries also 5X.

I have never entered the MAS Lounge at KLIA. I would think MAS lounges would be nicer since it is for their business and 1st class passengers.
